The present treatise “Indian jades”, provides the most authentic and trustworthy account of the origin and development of Indian jade art. Earlier, there existed a good deal of controversy and confusion about the origin and development of the art of Indian jade carving. It is believed that Indians first started producing jade specimens during the rule of the Mughal Emperor, Jahangir. Indians did not know jade as a raw material till the advent of Mughals in India. However, the present work proves that it will be incorrect to presume that Indians had not known the art of jade carving till the beginning of Mughal rule in India. Scant attention has been paid to contemporary literary works, such as manuscripts, historical records and travelogues which contain enormous information to supplement and strengthen our study. The present book will be of great importance both to researches and scholars to know the origin, development of art of Indian jade carving.
